Mondays don't get a whole of respect compared to the rest of the days of the week but I kind of like them. It's usually a busy day--I tend to pack a lot of household chores into this day. I go grocery shopping for the week, do a couple loads of laundry and clean the bathrooms. I enjoy getting the house back into a more recognizable state after a weekend of taking it easy.
My favorite part of the day, though, is what happens after I drop the boys off at school. I head to McDonald's, pick up a cappuccino, make my way to Walmart and spend a few minutes in the parking lot putting together a grocery list while listening to NPR. It's nice. The morning sun coming through the windows, the smell of coffee, going through coupons with talk radio in the background...very nice. It's my high for the day.
My low? Realizing that the highlight of my day is sitting in a parking lot trying to figure out what to fix for dinner.
